The Interesting Bits Scarf


If you've ever looked at a top-down triangular shawl and thought, "I like it -- but it's going to take forever to get to the interesting bits," then this is the shawl for you. It has a conventional top-down option, but there's also a scarf version that skips all the lead-up and begins right where the slip-stitch pattern is. So whether you're in the mood for some (fairly) mindless knitting first, or just want to skip to the interesting bits, this one's for you! Can be knit as a scarf or a shawl in either Milo or Feliz or a combination. Our kits are intended to be used to make the Feliz scarf version of this pattern. If you would like to make the shawl, you will need more yarn than the kits provide. Designer Lisa R.
